Nature Packs for families in need in Staffordshire

Will you buy a Nature Pack for a family in need? Just £3.50 will pay for one seasonal pack of activities to go to a family via their local food bank*
-In lockdown #1 Staffordshire Wildlife Trusts was able to use some existing funding to develop Nature Packs for families in need. These exciting activity packs contain lots of nature themed activities that can be done at home, in a garden or on a local walk. They provide inspiration for families to connect with nature and improve their mental health and well being. These packs are distributed to families most in need in Staffordshire via food banks and community projects.
-We continue to offer the packs, but there are many more families that would benefit than we can currently provide for. So we are asking if people can help us to keep this project going by offering to buy a pack for a family in need.
-Feedback from the packs has been greatly received, one of the first packs to go out reached an 8 year old girl in Stoke-on-Trent, her family responded by saying that she 'spent all afternoon engaged with the pack. She coloured in all the birds and even went online to see if a blue tit is really blue! Her Mum said it has engaged her more than anything else she has had.'
-Please help by buying a pack, or more if you can!
*We intend to dispatch the Nature Packs in batches of 100 - as soon as 100 packs have been purchased we will prepare and distribute the first batch to local families and so on as multiples of 100 are sold. Or on the 31st May, if we have not yet reached 100 packs sold we will prepare and distribute the total amount to local families.
